DescriptionThis is the description for the more direct Cheekbone corner and not the original 5.5 three pitch route.
Pitch 1. Near Cheekbone Boulder, scramble up to reach a large ledge and climb up the obvious off-width corner. After the corner keep going up the path of least resistance on blocky dirty terrain to get to a hardwood tree with black slings 30' below the overhanging dihedral. 5.6 R 100'
Pitch 2. Climb straight up the overhanging dihedral leading you to Pigeon shit ledge. From that ledge move left to an overhanging needle. Campus it to get around it (if you dare) and then climb straight up to reach trees at the top. 5.7 G 100'
To descend, either walk down to the right or rap from The Strata factor rap stations also on the right but closer to the face.
